Good thinking, as Monday’s snowstorm brought with it a slew of postponed games and more headaches as far as rescheduling.
NORTH SMITHFIELD â This winterâs record-setting stretch of snow is not only weighing on the patience of snow-weary Northern Rhode Islanders, itâs weighing down roofs where heavy loads of snow and ice have many fearing snow-related building collapses.
âIâve been in the roofing business for 20 years and the only other winter I can remember being this bad was the one we had four years ago,â says Shaun Reilly, president of Above All Roofing on Eddie Dowling Highway, a roofing and home improvement company that also provides local roof snow removal.
Arizona State (12-11) 81

The Arizona Wildcats traveled to Tempe to face in state rival Arizona State for what they expected to be an easy game. Arizona State came into the game at the bottom of the PAC 12 at 3-6 in conference play. The Sun Devils came out firing as they shot 50% from the field (26/52) and 46.7% from 3 (7/15). Guard Bo Barnes paced the Sun Devils with 18 points including a perfect 8 for 8 from the charity stripe.

WOONSOCKET â Is Mother Nature and all her fury winning the war against the Division of Public Works?
It sure looks like she dropped a bomb on an old city pickup truck in the midst of a snow-clearing detail in Oak Grove on Sunday.
Mayor Lisa Baldelli-Hunt said the truck spontaneously burst into flames after it became overheated and flammable fluids leaked onto the manifold. The driver, who was not identified, escaped without injury.
WOONSOCKET â A gathering of more than 200 revelers attending the 21st annual Mardi Gras celebration, benefiting the Northern Rhode Island Council of the Arts, learned the identity of King Jace Saturday night in what turned out to be a pretty hot surprise for the Cajun-flavored evening.
Woonsocket Fire Chief Paul Shatraw was the person under the Kingâs heavy black beard, black wig, Mardi Gras crown and several layers of robes, and was revealed to the crowd by Mardi Gras Queen Tracey Parenteau during the eveningâs festivities.
